Key storage cookie keys Administrators at organisations who use Three Rings may opt to install 'keys' onto particular computers in order to grant extra privileges to the volunteers who use those computers. Those keys are encoded into this cookie. They are deleted after 90 days, if not used. To delete this cookie, click the "Uninstall" button on the Keys panel of the Admin tab, after logging in, or see the instructions below.

The cookie is set by the act of attempting to log in with this checkbox checked, and, by default, has a lifespan of 90 days. To delete this cookie, successfully log in to Three Rings without the "Use Key" checkbox being checked, or see the instructions below.
